of irresponsibility in the republican budget is defense. instead of increasing pentagon spending, we should reform it. the most obvious target is the nuclear arsenal larger than anything we need for nuclear deterrence. 10% of our nuclear weapons would decimate russia. a handful of missiles would wipe north korea off the map. yet they propose to spend over 2/3 of a trillion dollars over the next 10 years on this bloated arsenal. before we increase the pentagon budget, maybe we should figure out why the f-35 joint strike fighter, which is now seven years behind schedule, 70% over budget, and the pentagon still doesn't know how it's going to meet the more than $1 trillion in operating and maintenance cost. amazingly the republicans want to increase spending for the pentagon, the only major budget so flawed it can't even be audited. there are bipartisan opportunities to reduce and reform the military, but you're not hearing about it in the republican budget this week. instead of a republican rerun of a bad reality tv show, let's consider working together on areas to change how the government does busines
on today. big changes for the department of defense. as part of the sequester cuts. good morning, lauren. we are talking about civilian employees of the department of defense. that can include men and women who have served our country in uniform who have now come back as civilians. >> it could effect hundreds of thousands of pentagon workers. furlough notices for civilian department of defense attorneys will be today. those are the notices, it will be a little more than a month before they begin their unpaid leave. it is part of the effort to cut spending in the wake of sequestration. the unpaid leaves are expected to start as soon as april 25th. few woeshgs will be exempt here. they will be taking one day a week unpaid and that works out to be a 20 percent annual pay cut. >> there's a man i know it is happening to he lost a leg fighting for our country in iraq now he's a civilian so he could be furloughed along with many, many others as well. we will keep following that one. talk with us about voters. >> they are nervous about the economy and the debt unlike leaders in washington. they
week. this is an offensive team that the defense department would use to defend the nation if it were attacked in cyber space. joining me now from washington to discuss the developing battle ground david sanger of the "new york times." welcome. >> great to be back with you. >> tell me why security experts are saying this has become if not our biggest national security threat th one erging wi the most concern for them. >> well it's certainly our newest and it may be among the urge else as it's an issue of consider debate. it's urgent because there are cyber attacks on the united states, mostly on u.s. corporations that take place every single day. but these are mostly attacks to sweep up vast amounts of intellectual property. whether it's an automobile design, the design of a gas pipene, could be any kind of commercial information that chinese or other companies might find useful. that isn't really at the center of the biggest national security concern. the biggest national security concern is what happens if a foreign power or a foreign hacker, a non-state actor manages to get into cr
are talking about a friend of mine asking how he's doing. compared what? the department of defense, we love them. they were stood up 65 years ago. they have not passed a clean financial audit. here we are an agency ten years complex knocking on the door. seat good sample so you can get it done for the brothers and sisters at dod. the secretary is committed to getting it done for them too. the when -- dhs was stood up ten years ago. there was no framework for accountability. there was also no guidance on which responsibilities with headquarter, which responsibility lay with the various component that make up the department, whatever that kind of environment, -- whatever the kind of environment exists in government a lot of wasteful spending and ine fresh sei. there was. the department made clear who was in charge of what. the new or disciplined environment will better enable the -- ensure that all of the operate more cohe'sive and effective agency. they used to have a dismal record when it came to contracts without competition. the departmental leadership has been aggressive in turning the r
to be probe more defensive in nature than cyclical. we're going to see a little bit of pause in the preference for risk assets, given concerns in cyprus, also some weak economic data coming out of germany. so, clearly, we're going to have a little bit of pause in risk. you're going to see some of the more defensive asset classes, health care, other high dividend-paying sectors, potentially doing better in the near-term. however, for the rest of the year, i continue to think that more cyclically sensitive industrials like technology can do better. >> and what do you think about -- >> i think there's got to be more offense. >> go ahead, say it again. >> maria, i think there's got to be more offense. that the auto and housing story is still in tact. that the energy infrastructure story for the u.s. is very much in tact. dresser and trinity are two plays there, and those are stocks we've talked about throughout this year. and they're going to be the stocks we're talking about in december of this year still. >> maria, i agree you have to play -- >> go ahead. >> i agree that you want to be playing o
? secretary of the treasury penny mcnickel? now he wants the new defense secretary to be former republican senator chuck hagel. thankfully, today 15 republican senators demanded the withdrawal of hagel's nomination and it's no wonder. senate republicans have found all sorts of shady associations in hagel's past. for instance, he was once a senate republican. [laughter] and now, according to conservative news anger-gregator breitbart.com, hagel may have taken money from an organization called "friends of hamas." friends of hamas! that's serious! being friends with a muslim terrorist is a big commitment. you've got to be a groomsman in all four of their weddings. i mean, the suicide vest rentals alone! [laughter] folks, this bombshell lit up the conserv-osphere. >> let me bring up one piece of information that ben shapiro at breitbart put out today, which is one of the foreign funders behind senator hagel that he has not yet disclosed formally is something called friends of hamas. >> you know i saw that information today, also, and that is more and more concerning. >> there was a report that
's defense. it is actually the antithesis of what we need. when the budget certainty and flexibility. sequestration compromises our readiness and compounds risk. left unaddressed, it could lead to a security gap, a lapse in coverage against threats to our national security interests. it is also the law. i'm hopeful but not optimistic that both its magnitude will be defused in the budget deal appeared in the meantime we have no choice but to prepare for its effect, which is our worst-case scenario. are you feeling afflicted? if you are, you're in good company. let me tell you this. the coverage, to continue my insurance metaphor, maybe a little less than what you were used to, but it is still the best available. and it is going to get better in time. here is where i hope my confidence bring some comfort. last week i called our joint chiefs and our combatant commanders to discuss how we will lead to this latest contraction, and it is the latest contraction. it is a bit of a historical pattern. in that room, where over 600 years of military experience was around the table, i thought we
, education, health care and any other program this government wishes to undertake, including defense. mr. president, what kind of time limit might i inquire? is it 30 minutes on this side on this motion? the presiding officer: on the motion, there is one hour equally divided. would the senator like to call up his motion? mr. sessions: my first question would be how much time is left on my half of that hour? the presiding officer: the motion has not yet been called. mr. sessions: well, i would call up the motion, mr. president. the presiding officer: the clerk will report the motion. the clerk: the senator from alabama, mr. sessions, moves to recommit senate concurrent resolution 8 back to the committee on budget with instructions to report back no later than march 22, 2013, with such changes as may be necessary to achieve unified budget balance by fiscal year 2023. mr. sessions: so this motion would simply say this to our colleagues, and it will be a defining vote for our members, and members need to understand the meaning of this vote. the question will be do you favor a balanced budget
atcludes the sequester level. there is flex ability for the military, department of defense and a few other areas that allow money to be moved to areas of greater priority. the house republicans passed to that thest year so across-the-board cuts did not occur in the way they have occurred. we felt there was much greater flexibility. we need to be wiser about this. we need to get the economy rolling again. and across-the-board cut is not the wisest way to do that. we did not get corroboration from the senate or the president. host: when it comes to the budget, which begins october 1, are there cuts to government spending in the ryan budget? guest: that is one of the great myths. people on the other side say you're slashing and burning. the fact of the matter is, this is the path we are on now. is theleft of that amount of debt the government has held since world war ii in the gray. you come up to where the rant -- red and green begin, that is the current path we are on. we are destined to take more and more and more debt on as a country, unless we change things. the green line is our budget,

.s./japan mutual relationship, both the mutual defense treaty and our bilateral general relationship would be central. but we also thought that asia deserved fully a broader treatment in its own right, so we really invested in the future. as we look ahead in terms of our asian studies center, we look also to other achievements in both the range of foreign and strategic issues as well as economic policy issues. in fact, today they are also interlinked that it is hard to distinguish one from the other. but today as we look ahead there is no one i can think of whom i would rather hear from and help us both to celebrate these anniversaries and to look ahead in terms of developments in the asia-pacific region. the chairman of the house foreign affairs committee, ed royce, is an old friend of the heritage foundation. he is also a real leader on foreign affairs. he has been actively involved in a very principled and substantial way with u.s. policy toward asia since he first came to congress 11 terms ago. representing california's 39th district, we are, indeed, very honored both to have the chair
like that. gl this is really the defense of marriage act you're talking about. >> right. so the problem is -- the two cases are already related. states have already decided people can get married. the question is what is the federal government going to do about that? are you going to have separate rights for different states? i don't think that's really allowed. if you look at the disabilities community, race, gender -- there are not many cases where the states have said, go ahead, some states can discriminate, and some can't. >> is it possible the court -- and i raise this point. you raised roe v. wade, and i think that's a good point. we didn't have to do it that way, but we did. state by state, american institutions, i thought that was the democratic way. on the other hand, the defense of marriage act looks more vulnerable, for the reason that governor dean mentions, spousal benefits and all that. the but the court could rule differently. no defense of marriage act, and then send the same-sex marriage back, essentially california's prop 8, send those cases back to the states, either
